In Social Studies 7 this week, the students will use their chrome books to retrace the steps of Lewis and Clark as they head west. They will analyze many topics from equipping the expedition to the role of Sacagawea on the journey.
7th and 8th grade Spanish students are finishing up units in food and shopping this week. They will have their chapter tests in these topics on Friday. This unit we added a new study tool, memrise.com. This site has spelling practice, and flashcards that students can personalize when they review. The link for the site is on google classroom.
We are already in the third week for 6th and 7th grade Health and 6th grade Family and Consumer Science! The 6th grade Health classes have been meeting with Deputy Eddington in the DARE program and we are also completing a nutrition project. Seventh grade health recently researched and presented safety issues at home and in the neighborhood. In Family and Consumer Science, the students researched character values and a role model that displayed these traits. I am looking forward to the student presentations. Have a great February break!
In English 7, students have been reading The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle by Avi and examining conflicts surrounding social norms and a trans-Atlantic sea voyage. Students recently created dramatic interpretations of key scenes complete with props, costumes, and choreography.
